20th Century Radicals Online Study Day 20th November

We’re very excited to share details of our next speaker for this upcoming event – only one week to go!

Dr Ray Kinsella is a lecturer at Central Saint Martins, UAL. His PhD, and forthcoming book, is about the music, fashion and transracial relations across gender that formed the bebop scene in post-war Soho, London. Ray’s presentation is entitled: Men’s Style in 1940s London Jazz Clubs: The Bebop Look. In late 1945, early 1946, bebop music migrated across the Atlantic from New York City to Soho, London, where it was reinterpreted and reproduced by a racially diverse bunch of largely male musicians in gritty Soho basement clubs. Together with the music, a D.I.Y fashion emerged, signifying a subcultural style, differentiating beboppers from other jazz fans and wider society more generally. Through looking at historical primary sources gleaned from the music press, national newspapers, and oral histories of jazz in Britain, this talk argues that male bebop fans and musicians in Soho, both black and white, drew from black American jazz, gangster films, and post-war ‘spiv’ culture to create an original sartorial style that that they called the modern jazz look. This dissident style, together with the subversive music and transracial cross-gender fraternisation, was one component in the story that led to the police clamp-down on the bebop scene in Soho which saw the main clubs raided.
